The use of a nerve stimulator to allow safe placement of Ilizarov wires.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Avoidance of potential iatrogenic nerve injury during insertion of Ilizarov fine wires into areas of high anatomic risk by using a modified nerve stimulation technique. INDICATIONS Application of the Ilizarov ring fixator to areas of high anatomic hazard, in situations where anatomic topography may be distorted by previous surgery, trauma, or… (More)
